...foot stompin' grooves, bareboned Delta fingerpickin styles, dobro guitar, fiery cajun accordian and smooth blues vocals.
Slim & Dr. Baz have been performing together for 7 years on the North Coast of NSW and SE Queensland and have played in Europe and the UK, and at several major festivals.
The Slim & Baz show is something really different to your run-of-the-mill pub fare, a refreshing, fun change with a toe-tapping beat.
This entertaining and award-winning duo produces an attractive and infectious up-beat sound, featuring dobro slide and ragtime guitar in a 'blues and roots', Ry Cooder-influenced style, combined with some exciting boogie woogie piano and cajun accordian, supporting powerful vocals, all delivered with an authentic, warm, "old timey" quality.
Slim & Dr. Baz also perform as a three piece band with drummer/vocalist Neil McCann.
Enjoyed by young and old, Slim & Dr. Baz offer a refreshing original sound, commanding residencies at Twin Towns Club on the Gold Coast to outback Australia, and appearances at the Byron Bay International Blues & Roots Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Blues on Broadbeach and the Gympie Muster.
Their second album "Next Time", already into it's second print run, has enjoyed strong reviews and is currently receiving ABC radio airplay.
